The course offers an introduction into dynamic macroeconomics. Topics covered include the empirical measurement and characterization of business cycles, and an introduction into dynamic macro modelling (Real Business Cycle and New Keynesian models). A particular focus will lie on deriving and understanding the parallels with undergraduate macroeconomic models and on understanding the effects of macroeconomic policy.
